Pulse Events has officially expanded its lineup for the eagerly awaited Spring Festival: Lunar New Year Celebration, scheduled for February 18-19, 2024, at Brooklyn’s renowned venue Avant Gardner. This event is a vibrant homage to the Chinese New Year and marks the advent of spring according to the Lunar calendar, with electronic music sensations SLANDER and Alan Walker leading the charge as headliners.
The festival’s Phase 2 announcement brings to light an impressive array of local Asian-American talent set to perform. On February 18, the Great Hall will be headlined by SLANDER, supported by the dynamic guitar-infused dubstep of Trivecta and the deep bass vibrations of French artist Samplifire. This stage will also feature an opening performance by New York’s own Asian-American emerging talent REMIX, and a unique Jom Zeng B2B Zion set to wrap up the night. Kings Hall, on the same night, showcases a roster of local Asian-American artists including G-NET, Orlost, DYVERGENT, GRIMMACE, and PSYTOXI, guaranteeing a rich tapestry of electronic music flavors.
The celebration continues on February 19 with Alan Walker’s much-anticipated debut at the festival in the Great Hall, alongside trap virtuoso 4B and LA’s Henry Fong. Additional performances will come from 4YU and CYBERPUNK, adding to the festival’s diverse musical offering. Kings Hall will feature boundary-pushing bass from What So Not, with New York’s upcoming talents SunRyse, Kasi Opi B2B Charmy, Auxygen, and Minijoy B2B 1MO contributing to the night’s high-energy lineup.
Beyond the music, the festival will offer attendees a culturally rich experience with a vibrant night market filled with Lunar New Year delicacies, interactive and immersive activities such as a glam station, photo booth, and Kandi Bracelet stations, enhancing the festive atmosphere. Pulse Events, since its inception in 2015, has been instrumental in spotlighting Asian-American talent within the global electronic music scene, and this festival continues to build on that legacy, offering a platform for cultural expression and celebration.
